Subject: Neat Little Package Of Drama
This little drama is a "woman's picture" in disguise. It's set against the back-drop of the end of the prohibition era and since it was made before the Hayes Office Code, it insinuates much but shows little in the way of the flesh, but you get the picture. The focus is on Glen Tryon and Vera Reynolds, but a few of the supporting cast deserve some notice too.
Symona Boniface as "Ethel", the other woman is haughty and fine and Vernon Dent is lightly comedic as the best friend. You may know both of them from many shorts with The Three Stooges.
George Cheesboro, usually a bad guy in westerns gets to be the good guy lawman here. Walter Long famous in silents from before "Birth Of A Nation" and in many other D.W. Griffith films is fine and blustery here in a small role. By far the biggest "star" in the picture, you have to wonder what he's doing here. Sound and picture are O.K. The film just isn't what you think it is.
Buffs only, but it's worth a look. Enjoy
